I'm a hopeful romantic interested in meeting someone for dating that will hopefully lead to a relationship with long-term or even marriage potential. No games here.
I'm not even close to being perfect, but I am a good man, and I'm taking my time and holding out for a woman who is good enough for me and is someone I can be proud to wake up with every morning. She must be mature and know what she wants. Considering the fact that I am the most loyal and most loving man a woman could ever even dream of having, I am not interested in mediocre. I want someone who is caring rather than selfish who will make me feel loved and worth the time and effort, just as I will do for her.
I like to have fun and I have a great sense of humor. I am single and have no children, but I am great with them. I have my own vehicle and a job I love with no intention of leaving in the near future. I have a very strong personality, but I have learned to be open-minded rather than stubborn. I am a very optimistic person, but I also try to be a realist. I am educated and highly intelligent. When it comes to relationships, I am very honest, faithful, loving, and affectionate. I believe that loyalty, trust, and communication are the keys to making a relationship last. I don't believe in lying or keeping secrets; I believe in companionship. I know that I will have these things with the person who is right for me.
I love all animals, especially dogs. I'm a bit of a nerd, sometimes. I enjoy good conversation, and I like going out and having a good time as well as staying in to watch a movie. Having companionship from the opposite gender is important, but I am not going to allow myself to feel rushed or stressed about a relationship. I am a very positive person, and I believe the most important part of starting something new is being able to laugh together.
Overall, I am looking for not only a true partner, but also a best friend, to bond with and form a lasting connection with.
Also, I don't lie or cheat. If I catch someone in a lie or hiding the truth, then the trust is over and the foundation crumbles. People need to learn to be honest.
Oh, and any women who have been described as "clingy" or "overly jealous" should feel free to apply. I've learned that a clingy woman just has a lot of love and attention to give to her man, and a jealous woman just feels that the man she loves is too important to lose. I can work with that.
What I want (more specifically):
You must be single with no children.
You must have voted for Mitt Romney in 2012.
You must be a very sexual person and be open-minded to trying new things.
You must not have a bad, b*tchy, or otherwise negative attitude.
You must like physical attention and affection, including touching and kissing in public.
You must not use drugs (I don't mind marijuana).
You must practice good hygiene.
You must work out at a gym regularly.
You must not regularly eat fast food or drink soda.
You must be free of all STD's.
You must not be religious. (I actually don't mind if you are religious, but many women can't handle my lack of faith. It's not going to change.)
You must speak and write with proper grammar.
You must fully understand the value of communication and trust in a relationship.
You must be a responsible adult who has mentally grown up and matured.
*All of the above describe me as well.
Note: I understand fully well the reality that most men give chase while most women wait to be chased. As a woman, you are likely propositioned, hit on, flirted with, or otherwise approached on quite a regular basis. Women are used to this, and so forms the common belief that you are something special when, in fact, you are not. Your p*ssy is not some valuable commodity. If you are one of those women who sees fit to sit back and wait because men seem to always go to you, then don't cry when those guys all seem to want only sex and then start asking where all the good men are. There are good men all over the place; get off your lazy, self-important ass and find one.
